It’s so true what they say about needing a vacation from your vacation. I was only gone for three days but when I got home I had 2 days of catching up to do. Thursday was full of to-do’s like getting my hair, nails and toes done, laundry, cleaning, making a grocery list, and a menu for next week. Plus errands, errands and more errands….Friday had an epic grocery trip that took two hours…..Blerg….I was seriously exhausted after that. For real…I came home and took a nap! I intended on working out but yeah….that was a no-go. We were out of EVERYTHING! I am not exaggerating. My children were eating RAISINS….they hate raisins….
Last week I made some pancakes out of my new cookbook! The recipe makes 18 pancakes so I put them in the freezer for later days. I am so glad I did because I am not exactly sure what I would have eaten. Maybe some dry oatmeal? PB out of the jar? Dry cereal?
w/ 1 tbsp. peanut butter & a sprinkle of chia seeds.
I substituted the oil in this recipe with 2 tbsp. unsweetened apple sauce and used 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk instead of skim milk. I recalculated the nutrition facts to be
per pancake: 84 calories, 12 carbs, 3 fat, 2 fiber, 3 protein.
These are really good. I had them again this morning except with, 1 teaspoon Brummel & Brown butter, 2 tsp. sugar-free syrup and chia seeds.
Then off I was to the grocery store. I was super hungry by the time I finally made it home. While I was figuring out what I wanted for lunch I had these…..
Gala apple, the juiciest best tasting peach ever and a Quaker School Days Best Berry granola bar. SO YUM!
And then this.
Skinny Cow Dreamy Clusters Candy (Heaven)
So, after that, I wasn’t hungry anymore and all I wanted was to lay down for a nap.
….and hour later I had these
2 tbsp. peanuts
…and then was craving some of this
So I baked up a batch and was counting the seconds until it was ready to eat!
Royal dessert fail…..SmartOnes Desserts Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae.
I should have just picked up one of those little single servings of Ben & Jerry’s for this amount of calories. It was horrible. Oh well, live and learn!
Today I am all caught up and it was back to business as usual. I was able to get up at my usual time and make it to the gym. I ran on the treadmill for 30 and then did some upper body work. Later today we have some Father’s Day shopping to do and then I have a YUMMY dinner to make!
Here is some TRUTH for your Saturday!!!!
